CJ Anderson only has one goal for the Denver Broncos

CJ Anderson is entering 2015 off a breakout season and has a new offensive scheme that should favor running the ball. Anderson rushed for 849 yards and 8 touchdowns last year in really only half a season as the featured back. Broncos fans, coaches, and pundits are salivating at the potential Anderson could have in 2015, but Anderson himself is only concerned with one thing.

For his efforts last year, Anderson has already been informed that he will have the opportunity heading into OTA’s as the Broncos number one running back on the depth chart.

Anderson isn’t taking that for-granted “Nothing is handed to you. I know that I have to go out and grind every day and work every day, put my hard hat on and bring my lunch pail. Our running back room is very talented as you guys got to see last year. It doesn’t matter who is behind me, we’re going to do what the team thinks is best. If that’s me, than that’s great. If that’s somebody else, then I’ll do whatever the team needs from me in my role.”

The third year Cal running back is doing everything he can to make sure that person is him. Anderson reached out to another Cal grad and former Kubiak pupil Justin Forsett for advise. “We talked for a long time. We did at the Pro Bowl and he gave me some cues. He called me maybe two weeks ago just asking me how things are going. The questions I had, he helped me out with it. When you hear it and you see it from player-to-player it kind of made a little more sense.”

Forsett rushed for 1,266 yards for Baltimore last year and many think Anderson could reach, if not exceed that mark.  “Justin helped me a lot with that. At the end of the day, it’s coming along better now. I’m putting a lot of time into it, a lot of hours. It’s coming in better. For me, it’s actually seeing it. I can talk about it and tell you guys what I need to do all day, but now it’s actually me seeing it and repping it so that it can click and we can move on.”

Anderson seems primed and ready for whatever challenges may be ahead.
